How to Draw a Pigeon For Kids
- Draw a circle.
In the next steps, it will make the bird’s head.
- Draw the eyes and the beak.
Draw the eyes in two small circles (remember their feature, huh?). Don’t forget to add the dots inside the eyes – the pupils. Next, sketch out the beak.
- Draw the outlines of the torso.
Draw the torso as an irregular oval attached to the head.
- Draw the wings.
Using long and curved lines depict the wings of the pigeon, as shown in the example.
- Draw the tail.
Draw a quadrilateral with one side serrated.
- Draw the feathers.
Draw the top row of feathers similarly to the wings in the step 4.
- Draw the «collar» and the legs.
Final touches. Use curved lines to draw the feather collar. Draw the legs on the lower torso. Using short lines depict the feathers on the tail.
- Erase the guidelines.
To give your drawing a finished look, delete all unnecessary guidelines. If you want to make the drawing more expressive, trace it with a dark pencil.
- Color the drawing.
I painted the pigeon purple and gray and chose yellow for the legs and beak. But you can color your drawing in any other color.
